2Pac Makaveli Album Set To Be An NFT Set For Auction June 18
The classic and mysterious Makaveli album cover of 2Pac Shakur which was released in 1996 is now set to be released as a non-fungible token(NFT) next month.
The album titled ”The Don Killuminati: The 7-day Theory” is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and the album designer Riskie Forever has announced that he and popular boxing legend Mike Tyson have teamed up to make fans of 2Pac see his album photo on the crypto blockchain in a month’s time. The album was released on November 5, 1996, two months after 2Pac’s assassination.
2Pac however released the album under the alias Makaveli. The hip-hop legend was famous for the song ”Hail Mary” which began to spark rumours at the time that he was alive. It is still a mystery how 2Pac was killed as there have been plenty of speculations regarding his death.
In 2015, Riskie Forever sold the album cover of the album but crypto wallet manager Zelus helped him recover it. Popular auction group Heritage Auctions will sell the artwork on June 18 in New York. The plus side is that fans can win up to $100k through Sweepstakes on the website makaveliart.com page on June 5.
Mike Tyson is very happy to honour 2Pac after nearly 26 years of his passing and the boxing legend is very thankful to everyone who has made this happen. The album picture depicts 2Pac on a cross, akin to Jesus Christ with a crown of thorns, and his pelvic area was covered with the ”Parents Advisory ”. The artwork does not make a mockery of Christ as it was even written below on the painting.
2Pac was assassinated shortly after the famous Mike Tyson vs Bruce Seldon fight in September 1996 that became notoriously related to the assassination of 2Pac. The auction is what many hip-hop fans around the world will be looking forward to as it will be a genuinely good way to remember the legend of hip-hop music.
